Picking out what to wear for our newborn session was quite possibly the most stressed I’ve ever been when it came to picking outfits. In addition to the typical challenge of finding things to wear, my body was still recovering from having a baby. I didn’t exactly fit into a lot of my pre-baby clothing […]

What to wear for your spring or summer newborn session

May 16, 2019

The weather forecast for the day of Stephanie and Rich‘s wedding did not look good: Rainy, cold, windy. Such is fall in New Hampshire. We crossed our fingers and hoped for the best and I silently prayed for good weather the night before. And, as luck would have it, the rain cleared up by noon […]

Oh these sweet people. Julie was one of my mentor moms this past summer for the Square One new mom’s group at Watermark Church. We formed an instant friendship discussing all things weddings and photography before each session began. Julie and her husband, Matt, are super talented photographers in the Dallas area and I was […]

If you’ve planned a wedding before (or been close to someone who’s planned a wedding), you’ve probably heard someone say, ‘everyone has their wedding story.’ By “wedding story,” people mean the thing — or two, if your luck is really bad — that went awry on the wedding day. I love when people ask this […]

Ah yes. One of the oldest wedding traditions that’s still around today: the bridal session. But as weddings become more “personalized” and traditions are shed, bridal sessions are often the first thing to get chucked from the list. You may be wondering what the heck is a bridal session and why do I need to […]

This session was such a sweet one for me because it was the first one back from my “maternity leave” but I was still very much in the newborn stage! I love being able to connect to my clients on such a personal level now that I have a baby. Allison’s maternity session took place […]

Yes, it’s that time of year again for fall family photos and it’s that time of year to start stressing about what to wear. Not only do you have football games, weddings, and holiday parties on the docket but those dang photos you have coming up also merit a *new* outfit, right?! Did you know […]

Jill and Ryan’s wedding was one for the books. It was a warm spring day in April at the Stone Crest Venue in McKinney, filled with friends and family who came to celebrate their marriage. Their day was filled with love and a lot of celebrating. Jill was the epitome of classic bridal elegance in […]

It’s with mixed emotions I bring to you the last installment in my summer vendor spotlight series. We’ve been chatting with some of my favorite Dallas and Fort Worth wedding planners, florists, makeup artists, and calligraphers to find more about who they are, what they do, and how they love and serve their clients so […]

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve heard me talk about how I never thought I’d do a maternity session when I was pregnant. I also didn’t think I’d ever be a family photographer … and yet, my heart totally changed after becoming pregnant and now I loooove shooting families, newborns, and maternity sessions. #neversaynever, […]
